Looking for some advice from someone who may know...
I left the mob in 2006 as a LH. I rejoined in 2008, and left this year (22yrs done) but as an AB.
So apart from flying through 22years and leaving as an AB, the question I now have, is:
Can I wear hooks on my No1 uniform, as when I origionally left I was a LH. I don't want to look like a prat on putting them on if I'm not entitled.

Rememberance... And stuff to do with my local legion. Nothing other than that, and yes joined a different branch, and the silent service

I wear my gongs and dolphins on my jacket for Legion stuff (tomorrow and Sunday they'll be getting an airing!).

If you weren't a killick when you went outside then no hook, plus you'll look like an old sea cadet wearing rig.

Former Soviet JRs wear rig into their 90s. It isn't a good look.

There is an entitlement for former members of the 'Naval Service' to wear rig and it's been addressed in the forums. State occasions being one but I don't think that entitles you to wear rig propping up the bar in your local watching a royal wedding on the big television.

As for your rank: discharged to pension as an AB probably makes you an AB. Invoking previous is tenuous in my opinion.

Hooks plural?

Hooks, well you know what I meen, and I wasn't looking to wear my no1s into my 90 either, I was asked to by the local cadet unit my childen attend, but was unsure of the "HOOK"!! Situation.
And it was going to be the last time I wore them for an occasion.
I was solely looking for advice on the rank slide, but thanks for the lectures on uniform and lessons on my grammar....
